"The fusion of biology and computer science is the hottest of the hot in science right now, and it's going to heat up even more. Bioinformaticians, also known as computational bi- ologists, use computer modeling to predict which drugs will work on which illnesses, shaving the time and cost of getting new products to market. No wonder drugmakers are salivating over these professionals, especially in the wake of human-genome mapping. Chris Smith, who works as a bioinformatician at the San Diego Supercomputer Center, predicts that "there will be a 100 percent increase per year in the field for the next five years at least." Even now a bioinformatician with three to five years of experience can command $120,000."

"Almost all companies say they're having trouble finding people with expertise in bioinformatics, the use of computers to solve complex biological problems. The human genome's mapping has ushered in a new era of genetic medicine, but to capitalize on this knowledge, researchers need to know how to use powerful computers to translate raw biological data into information useful for developing new therapies.

"There's a struggle to have people that are well educated in both computer science as well as biology," said David Pot , InforMax's director of application sciences. "We recognize we need super scientists, but those super scientists don't have the training to write super software.""

"Move over Information Age. Make room for the age of bioinformation.

Experts have already dubbed bioinformatics - a hybrid profession pairing biology and computer science - the career choice of the decade.

"There is a crying need for experts in bioinformatics and this is not something that will just fade away," said Dr. Leena Peltonen, chairwoman of the Department of Human Genetics at UCLA."

Bioinformatics will be at the core of biology in the 21st century. In fields ranging from structural biology to genomics to biomedical imaging, ready access to data and analytical tools are fundamentally changing the way investigators in the life sciences conduct research and approach problems. Complex, computationally intensive biological problems are now being addressed and promise to significantly advance our understanding of biology and medicine. No biological discipline will be unaffected by these technological breakthroughs.
